To better understand LGBT members, Leading LDS spoke with North Star International president Ty Mansfield and members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who all experience same-sex attraction.

The podcast focuses on how indviduals can support other members in their Latter-day Saint wards who identify as LGBT. The podcast shares with listeners:

  • Different resources (from the Church, North Star and Voices of Hope Project) that are available to Church members and leaders to help them understand same-sex attraction
  • How to help someone with same-sex attraction reconcile with the doctrines of a family-centric church
  • Things to say, and not to say, to someone who is LGBT or has a family member who is LGBT
  • How to create a loving and inviting Church environment for individuals with same-sex attraction
